If you didn't like the zipper face you might want to pass on this post also.
I try to not put to much gore on here, but it's Halloween and I was quite pleased with my last minute costume that I put together for a party the other night.I wore my jeans, t-shirt, jacket and grabbed a fishing pole. I then made it look like I hooked myself with the fish hook.
Ha ha I tried go for a hurt look on my face. Didn't accomplish it.
I started with liquid latex. Please make sure you are not allergic! With a q-tip I painted a half circle under my eye. Let dry completely. Click below to read on...
I was honored to have been invited to be on KSL but after seeing myself I had second thoughts. It was fun and I want to thank Scott, Libby and KSL. Just a little fact about TV. It puts an extra 50 pounds on you.Wink wink!
I planned on doing this for a tutorial. I started out by taking pictures with each step. Then the further I got into it, the more I began picking out sewing mistakes, cutting things out wrong, and feeling very overwhelmed. I just couldn't do a tutorial on something that I couldn't explain myself. LOL! I do not sew unless one of my kids plead for me to do so. After much trial and error, we ended up with a cute little Boo. (MY grand daughter Halee)

Today I am sharing one of my daughters projects. Enjoy!
I was walking down the aisle at Walmart and saw a bunch of those
trick-or-treat pumpkin buckets. Shades of blue really attract me so of
course I picked out the brightest blue pumpkin there, for no reason. I
also stopped by the scrapbook area of Walmart and got a pack of
Halloween paper for $1. I ended up deciding to try mod-podge for the
Here is my pumpkin and the paper I used. Mod-podge, a spongebrush, and dollar store fake flowers were also used.
I sprayed the wreath black, wrapped the boa and banner around it and hot glued to keep in place. I hung the sign in the center and added a few webs. Very easy and fun project for the kids. My grand daughter helped me with this one and loved it!
This next wreath consists of snakes and a wreath from the dollar store. This idea comes from Martha Stewart. Go HERE to get directions.
After looking at my wreath I think I need to add a few more snakes. What do you think?
